There are a few rules to abide to, but it's nothing you wouldn't see in other groups:
Be polite, considerate, and respectful of others. (After all, we're supposed to brighten others' days!)
Galleries are open (rules can be found here), so please, no stolen artwork.
Now that the drab part is over with, here's the actual meat of the cause:
dAy-Brighteners was created to improve (brighten) other Deviants' days, through means of a kind comment, a few sentences, or some words on his/her artwork.
Try to aim for at least five a day!
The comments can be on friends, family, or a total stranger.
If you're pressed for time, try asking how others' days are. Even in a Favorite response co

A Foreigner's Guide to Sarcasm What is sarcasm?A Foreigner's Guide to Sarcasm1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sarcasm is a somewhat 'English' trait. Whilst stereotypical, it is (for the majority) fairly accurate.
The dictionary definition is as follows;
1. harsh or bitter derision or irony.
2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms.
Sarcasm is saying something in an ironic fashion, often meaning the opposite of what is seen or said. It can sometimes be followed by air-quotes, rolling of the eyes or a slight 'snort' of amusement. Insulting someone using sarcasm isn't as common as just being ironic.
How do I use sarcasm?
It's very simple to use. You just take something that you don't like; the weather, being alone, being ill/fat/unfit etc
Then you rep

DeviantART announced a month ago that through a new organization, Dadotart we applied to manage a new Top Level Domain (TLD) called “.ART.” We are committed to having the .ART TLD — the Internet addresses that could end in .ART — organized and distributed with the full participation of the global art community.
We need your help!
We need your help to show public support for the Dadotart application. The application process to manage a TLD is long, arduous, and intricate. Help us gather as a true art-centric community.

You May Say I'm An Artist...You May Say I'm An Artist...1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed in the morning.
It is the guide and the justification for everything, including our business partnerships, the development of the new app and the design of our new ide
Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20131 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
